USA Cycling Kids Race

Kids' race participantsOne of the spectator highlights of the Greenville championships is the Kids Race, where kids from 6-12 get a chance to race the final 200 meters of the pro course.

They come on Big Wheels, BMX bikes, brand-new Treks, and steel frames with a sheen of rust. Everybody wears race bib number 1, and everybody takes home a medal. The cardinal rule is œdon’t run into any of the other riders.

It’s a terrific way to introduce the sport to youngsters – where else would they get the chance to compete in front of thousands of spectators lining the race’s start-finish area?

Here’s a photoset with some of the participants.

Seattle Green Building Bike Tour—Sept 6, 10 AM

Central_lib.jpg Nate Miller’s got the low down on what’s green and going up (or has gone up) in the city center. I really enjoy rides where you get to learn a bit more about our city (like the train yard tour last year), this promises to be really fascinating. And what better way to tour the green architecture of the city than by bike?

Cycling is a big thing in Greenville

From the charity rides, local races, and USPro, cycling is a big thing in Greenville – there’s some urban and commuting. Just got out of the Mavic Neutral Race Support Car. Full posts, podcasts to follow.

Also note that Bike Rumors posted on Hincapie Jeans. They’re real.

Ride Seattle: Cargo Bike Ride XIV on Labor Day

Cargo bike ride 16 – the tradition continues! The ride is all set for noon tomorrow, starting from 20/20 Cycles (at 2020 East Union on Capitol Hill). Destination is Ravenna Park in the U. District. The official flyer is here. These rides are always fun, with folks bringing all kinds of stuff to make the ride and destination more pleasant, including children. No cargo bike required of course, but you’ll see plenty there.

Velocouture Sketch

This sketch and others are from Christopher Koelle’s illustrated zine Sweet Ride. I spotted the zine at Hincapie HQ and also noticed how an urban aesthetic is influencing Hincapie’s 09 lifestyle, Apres-ride line.
